Classic Evening Dresses That Aren't LBDs


While the little black dress (LBD) has always been a staple in every woman’s wardrobe, classic evening dresses, on the other hand, offer a refreshing alternative to this timeless silhouette. Moreover, these stunning creations celebrate femininity and the art of dressing up in enchanting ways. Just imagine flowing gowns with delicate lace detailing, voluminous skirts that exude glamour, and figure-hugging silhouettes that accentuate every curve.


The best way to capture the essence of the past is with an overly elegant style. Our particular favorites are the ALESSANDRA RICH Floral Silk Mini Dress and the ROTATE BIRGER CHRISTENSEN Open-back Gathered Recycled Satin-twill Midi Dress. By deviating from the predictable LBD, you embrace a sense of individuality and allow the vintage glamour trend to truly shine through. And with styles like these, you might even look like you started the trend yourself.
